The Georgia Driver Education Scholarship program provides funding to certain family groups for the purposes of satisfying Georgia Driver’s Education Requirements.  

According to the official program website, https://georgiadrivers.ga.gov  “The Georgia Driver’s Education Commission offers the Georgia Driver’s Education Grant Scholarship Program to offer driver’s education to Georgia students. The grant scholarship program is open to Georgia residents ages fifteen through seventeen who wish to satisfy the Joshua’s Law driver’s education requirement by completing thirty hours of classroom instruction and six hours of behind the wheel driving instruction with an approved instructor. The first priority will be given to grant scholarship applicants who are a child or dependent of a public safety professional or member of the United States military killed in the line of duty. The second priority will be given to scholarship applicants who can demonstrate a need based on family income. The third priority will be given to all applicants who do not meet the criteria set forth in the first priority and second priority outlined above. Grant scholarship allocations are evenly distributed among Georgia’s United States congressional districts.”

  1. The student must be a resident of the State of Georgia and actively enrolled in school
